As with all stock movements, to transfer stock from one storage bin to another storage bin within a warehouse number you first create a transfer order.

To transfer stock of a material from one storage type to another, you can display the bin stock of the source storage type (same as with the bin status report). From this display you can select the stock to be transferred and create the respective transfer orders.


  1. Choose Logistics ® Logistics Execution ® Internal Warehouse Processes ® Stock Transfer ® Create Transfer Order® From Stock List from the SAP menu.
  2. Enter the warehouse number and the storage type. You can limit the selection to a storage bin or range of storage bins.
  3. A warehouse stock list appears.

  4. From the list displayed, select line items which are not blocked that you want to move to another bin.
  5. The system flags blocked items with a padlock symbol.

  6. To specify the destination storage bin, select Stock transf.frgrnd (stock transfer foreground). To allow the system to select a destination bin for you, select Stock transf.bckgrnd (stock transfer background).
  7. The system creates a transfer order to move the stock.

  8. Once you have moved the stock to the new bin location, confirm the transfer order to complete the transaction.
